Summary

It’s time to curl up with Carmel....    

When your heart belongs in two places, can you ever truly find home? 

Brooklyn, New York,
Bea has grown up in the heart of the Irish community, always hearing stories of home. When she discovers a letter from her younger self, written years before, it sends her deep into her own family history.

Kilmore Quay, Ireland.
Years earlier, Lucy Mernagh leaves her much-loved home and family in search of the New York dream. The Big Apple is a world away from the quiet village she grew up in, and the longing for home aches within her.

When Bea uncovers a shocking secret, it takes her back across the water to Kilmore Quay, where - finally - long-buried truths will come to light. But fate has one last twist in store....

Critic reviews

"Carmel Harrington is a natural storyteller...with heart, humour and hope." (RTE)

"Unashamedly full of heart...takes the reader on an unputdownable journey between New York and Wexford. It is a story about family and identity, about legacy and secrets...a touching love letter to Ireland." (Hazel Gaynor)

"Heartwarming humour, with tears, laughter and friendship. Immensely enjoyable." (Irish Times)

Great story telling

I loved the characters and how everything blended together. There are so many moments that will stay with me forever. So warm and uplifting
